Taste Test: Goat Milk Caramels

goat-milk-caramelsWhat happens if you love caramel chews but discover that you can’t digest cow’s milk? A typical recipe for soft caramel chews includes milk, cream or both.

Well, since many people who can’t consume cow’s milk without discomfort can consume goat’s milk just fine, Goat Milk Stuff may have a solution for you. The family owned business, which has been marketing natural goat milk soaps and lotions around the USA and world, has now entered the food market with a line of Caramel Candy made with farm-fresh goat milk.

Overall Thoughts
Before writing this post, I wanted to make sure that the product was good, so I asked for samples. I received some Cinnamon and Sea Salt samples a couple days ago and I have to say they are da bomb!

Now, for context, I need to tell you that I’m not much of a caramel fan. I find most caramels to be far too sweet for my tastes, plus many are so tough you spend all your time chewing and chewing. I have a bad jaw, so I don’t like that either.

However, these Goat Milk Caramels from Goat Milk Stuff are soft and practically melt in your mouth. They are not overly sweet, either. There is a freshness to their taste that reminds me of the salt-water taffy you can get freshly made in Bodega Bay (or your local fair). The Sea Salt variety is good, but the Cinnamon is fantastic. The subtle tones of cinnamon balance out the sweetness of the caramel very nicely. I’ve never thought of melding those two flavors before, but I will now!

Product Background
Jonas_familyThe line of Goat Milk Caramels are made by PJ and Jim Jonas and their 8 children (8 to 18) on the family’s Indiana farm.

“As our first entry into food products, the Caramel Candy reflects our family’s continuing commitment to offer natural products of the highest quality,” says PJ Jonas, founder of Goat Milk Stuff. “Our pasture-fed Alpine goats provide milk rich in vitamin A and gives Goat Milk Stuff Carmel Candy a rich, creamy, delightfully chewy extra-tasty melt-in-your-mouth homemade-deliciousness that is perfect for family enjoyment or to give as holiday gifts.” In addition, “Our Caramel Candy is made with healthy organic ingredients and does not contain any genetically-modified additives or GMOs.”

PJ and Jim homeschool their children, and use Goat Milk Stuff as a teaching tool as the children develop an understanding of how business works. From daughter Brett, at 18, to sisters Jade and Indigo, 8 and 9, and with boys Colter, Emery, Fletcher, Greyden and Hewitt between them, all help mom and dad as they do daily chores and get real-world business experience to complement their homeschooling subjects from math and science to history, literature, Bible study and more.

Based in Scottsburg, Indiana, the Jonas family maintains an active social media presence with a growing following at www.Facebook.com/GoatMilkStuff, YouTube.com/GoatMilkStuff and at Twitter.com/GoatMilkStuff. You can purchase their caramels and other products at www.GoatMilkStuff.com.
